The PSF Committee’s College Football Playoff Rankings after Week 9

Every college football fan knows what the CFP Selection Committee is. They select the four best teams for a college football playoff based off of the eye test, strength of schedule, records, wins over common opponents, and conference championships. The first edition of the rankings comes out on Tuesday, October 31st, and it’s time for fans to map out their team’s road to the playoff. CFB Experts across the world will be doing the same over the next few months until the final four teams are revealed in early December. But recently,  Pro Sports Fandom’s CFB experts formed their own Committee, “The PSF CFB Playoff Committee”, where we will create our own averaged CFB playoff rankings from a panel of 7-10 experts. Your favorite college football experts at PSF are teaming up each week to bring you our very own rankings. After an upset filled Week 9 of football, here is the inaugural edition of the PSF Committee CFB Playoff rankings!
